User: what is a covalent compound

User: what is a metal

Weegy: A metal (from Greek "????????" ? m?tallon, "mine, quarry, metal"[1][2]) is an element, compound, or alloy that is a good conductor of both electricity and heat. [ Metals are usually malleable and shiny, that is they reflect most of incident light.[3] In a metal, atoms readily lose electrons to form positive ions (cations). Those ions are surrounded by de-localized electrons, which are responsible for the conductivity. The solid thus produced is held by electrostatic interactions between the ions and the electron cloud, which are called metallic bonds.[4] (Wikipedia) ]

User: what is an ionic bond

Weegy: Covalent bond is a bond where two atoms share 1, 2, or 3 pairs of electrons between them, forming a very strong attraction. [ These bonds form between atoms that generally have fairly close electronegativities to one another, though there are exceptions. Ionic bonds are attractions formed when one atom gives up an electron, becoming positively charged, or a cation, and another accepts the electron, becoming negatively charged, or an anion. The attraction of a negative charge to a positive charge creates the ionic bond, and ionic compounds are commonly called salts. Hydrogen bonds are not true bond, but are weaker interactions between a hydrogen bonded to a strongly electronegative atom like Oxygen, Nitrogen or Flourine, and the lone electrons on another oxygen, nitrogen or flourine. The lone pairs of electrons on these highly electronegative atoms have a large partial negative charge, while hydrogens bonded to highly electronegative atoms have a large partial positive charge, allowing the interactions to occur. ]

Ionic bond: bond in which one or more electrons from one atom are removed and attached to another atom, resulting in positive and negative ions which attract each other.
